Teen Boy

Welcome to another challenge from Di's Digi Designs: Add A Sentiment.  It doesn't get any easier than that, does it?
Here is my card for your inspiration:
One of the boys at our church is turning 13 at the end of the month!  I created this card for him.  He is very quiet and enjoys playing piano, trumpet and the drums so I think he will appreciate this young guy listening to his music.  I kept it simple as I didn't think he would be into much embellishing, but the patterned papers bring in a lot of fun!  I die cut the circle with a spellbinders die and then used a stitched circle die to emboss a circle inside the die cut one.  It adds a fun, subtle texture.

Stamps: Di's Digi Stamps "MP3 Mike" digi; YNS "Silly Monsters" sentiment
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle and "Blueprints 12" stitched circle; Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"
Paper: MFT "Woodland Trails"

Crafty Catz #387--anything goes with the optional twist: CAS
Aud Sentiments #190--use a die cut
Southern Girls--stripey days are here again
CAS-ology #269--grid (on my paper)
Dies R' Us #82--Life's events
Addicted To Stamps #262--make your mark
